Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, talk pages are meant to be a record of a discussion; deleting or editing legitimate comments, as you did at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject National Basketball Association, is considered bad practice, even if you meant well. Even making spelling and grammatical corrections in others' comments is generally frowned upon, as it tends to irritate the users whose comments you are correcting. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Yosemiter (talk) 16:02, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

@Yosemiter: Understood, thank you!!! SportsFan007 (talk) 16:04, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Per your comment about someone else's comment on your previous edit warring: in my opinion, you have become a much better editor now than your were then. You went through some growing pains and unfortunately it is in your block history. Keep up the good work otherwise and keep learning even if you make mistakes. (This template was more of an FYI than an actual warning.) Yosemiter (talk) 16:36, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

I have seen you reverted my edit. What is the need for the recent change in the amount operated section? Seems to always been ok the way it was before 24.104.250.197 (talk) 00:26, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

@24.104.250.197: I wanted to keep it consistent with the other tables. SportsFan007 (talk) 00:30, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

@SportsFan007: I see, however there is no way to have complete consistency considering the fact that there is no exact numbers provided as there are for the local and express fleets. Have said that, I would suggest putting it back to the old way it was. 24.104.250.197 (talk) 00:37, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

@24.104.250.197: Ok, i switched it back until the numbers can be obtained. Thank you!!!! SportsFan007 (talk) 00:43, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

@SportsFan007: No problem, I am glad I could be of some help. 24.104.250.197 (talk) 02:18, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Information icon Hello. Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia.

When editing an article on Wikipedia, you will see a small field labeled "Edit summary" shown under the main edit box. It looks like this:

Edit summary (Briefly describe your changes)

 

I noticed your recent edit to Minnesota United FC does not have an edit summary. Please be sure to provide a summary of every edit you make, even if you write only the briefest of summaries. The summaries are very helpful to people browsing an article's history.

Edit summary content is visible in:

Please use the edit summary to explain your reasoning for the edit, or a summary of what the edit changes. You can give yourself a reminder to add an edit summary by setting Preferences → Editing → check Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary. And on the fields article Stop adding BS to articles. Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:18, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for adding an unprompted edit summary on the stadiums article. While the 2018 season is over, the field has not been opened and so to state it's in-use is misleading at best and a lie a worst. We do not make statements on the project until they actually take place. This applies to transfers, starts of contracts and use of fields. Atlanta was the same. Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:21, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@Walter Görlitz: Ah ok, fair enough, thank you!!! SportsFan007 (talk) 01:25, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Greetings, about a user[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Hi, SportsFan007, I noticed that you had a lots of requests from a single user to make user-boxes, and I have gotten a lot as well. First, I want to thank you for helping out with some of the requests, your boxes looks great! However, is there something we should do about this? It's not necessarily bad, just repetitive. Thank you for your feedback, and have a nice day! Zanygenius(talk to me!)(email me!) 00:14, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

@Zanygenius: Perhaps we should put limits on requests per user as to number of requests in certain amount of time? SportsFan007 (talk) 00:34, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
@SportsFan007: Thank you for replying, that is a good idea. In my personal opinion, creativity itself shouldn't be limited. So perhaps we could do like 2-4 requests a week? Also, should we ask the tech about this, and try to get some help that way? Zanygenius(talk to me!)(email me!) 16:03, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

April 2019[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

As I already wrote to other users, the new logo will not be used until the 2020 season per a press release. In addition, the logo that you reinstated is the league's secondary logo. The new main logo is completely different. Just because something is shown on their website, that does not mean that you or anyone else should ignore what was officially stated in a press release. And regarding the WNBA's "Commissioner" – there is no such position in the WNBA. It is clearly stated in a press release from October 2018 that "Following three successful seasons as President of the Women’s National Basketball Association...", which is clear that President is the top position. In addition, it also says that "NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum will oversee the WNBA on an interim basis, and a search for a new league president will commence immediately.", which makes Mark Tatum as interim President. Please get familiar with the situation before reverting, because I am getting fed up with these reverts. – Sabbatino (talk) 13:16, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

@Sabbatino: I apologize for my confusion. SportsFan007 (talk) 14:01, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
@Sabbatino: Also, according to this website: [[1]], the logo that I had reinstated is the main logo. SportsFan007 (talk) 14:09, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
SportsLogos.net often confuse logos, which is the case with the WNBA's logo. The new main logo is similar to the current one, but the athlete is rotated to the left (in the current logo it is rotated to the right). One of the places where the correct main logo can be seen is at NBA G League's website (top right corner). – Sabbatino (talk) 14:20, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
Comment. Also, please keep the discussion in one place. – Sabbatino (talk) 14:22, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
@Sabbatino: Thank you for clarifying. SportsFan007 (talk) 14:29, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

Fix Your signature[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I noticed on a talk page your signature causes your username to appear after the timestamp. I suggest you fix it. TheEditster (talk) 19:20, 4 May 2019 (UTC)

@TheEditster: I don’t see what you are talking about. SportsFan007 (talk) 20:22, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
This. You'll see your username show up right after the timestamp on your signature. I just corrected the latest one. TheEditster (talk) 21:52, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
@TheEditster: That automatically happens when I use the ~~~~ SportsFan007 (talk) 00:11, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
That's because you have your username string after the date. You have to go to settings and remove the username string. You have it twice. TheEditster (talk) 00:35, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
@TheEditster: Fixed! Thank you! SportsFan007 (talk) 01:17, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

What are your thoughts on merging of duplicate userboxes?[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

After I posted an invitation for the effort to WP:WPUBX#Diffuse, I thought a bunch about another task claimed at the page of the WikiProject Userboxes, namely Merge duplicates of same template. Today, I checked the archive of my talk page, I thought I should ask you about this. In responce to the linked userbox request, you have created three similar userboxes: {{User:SportsFan007/UserBoxes/Pearl Jam}}, {{User:SportsFan007/UserBoxes/Pearl Jam2}}, and {{User:SportsFan007/UserBoxes/Pearl Jam3}}. What do you think about possibly merging them into one userbox with a parameter to allow choosing the wording? —⁠andrybak (talk) 00:57, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

@Andrybak: Sounds like a good idea to me. SportsFan007 (talk) 01:33, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Do you have any thoughts about merging of userboxes in general? Is it a worthwhile task? —⁠andrybak (talk) 17:21, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to [email protected], so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at [email protected]

Thank you!

Attribution please![edit]

Hello, it has come to my attention that you and a group of other users have copied my "blue button UBX page link" idea. This is okay, but could you please credit me?
Thanks, CrazyMinecart88 (talk | contribs) 12:38, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

@CrazyMinecart88: I apologize, I honestly thought it was a default Wikipedia template, I didn't realize it was somebody's custom design. How exactly do I credit you? SportsFan007 (talk) 20:42, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

It is not a custom template, but it was my idea to use it in this way. You don't have to credit me, but it something like this happens again, please tell the user what you are doing. My apologies for any confusion I may have caused you.
